. >> they really are. republicans were the ones out to destroy president obama, of course, when he took office, and now the republicans need gerrymandering taking place to get through and run through to get to their seats. here's more from speaker boehner. >> we're going to have to make some big decisions about how we as a party take on this challenge. you know, where's the ground that we fight on? where's the ground that we retreat on? where are the smart fights? where are the dumb fights that we have to stay away from? >> you know, it's interesting he's saying that because four years ago, inauguration day, what was happening? they were having a meeting to say no to everything. do they know where they're going this time around? >> well, no, they don't. and remember that they're lamenting the fact that the president's coming after them. but they don't seem to mind if it's them going after the president. i mean, never mind the double standard here. if you just take his prognosis as being a fact, they have to figure something out, why at this moment when they need to figure out what they stand f
to president obama some republicans are doing some electoral map tinkering. for now just on paper. the 2012 electoral map. most states are winer take all in the electoral college. republicans look at interrupts in seven battleground states a wondering if the states should consider divided electoral college votes by congressional district. you win that district, you get an electoral veg vote. if that had been the case in 2019, republican romney would have picked up enough votes in these states to win the white house. a former michigan republican party chairman supports the idea and says a chance to ensure the population centers of the state tonight overwhelming the rest of the state. >> i think there is a lot of people who are frustrated with the current winner take all system. some form of proportionality and fair system is really attractive. >> the rnc chairman reince priebus encouraged states to take a look at the plan. >> it's a state issue. personally, i'm intrigued by it. >> political analyst larry sabato doesn't think the idea will or should go anywhere. >> under this system, if it we
. what president obama has proposed to do on gun reform is very popular, even among republican voters. when you ask them about the things that the president's proposing, pretty much republicans think these things are good ideas, we ought to be doing them, they are in favor. and then the same "washington post" poll asked republicans, okay, broadly speaking, do you like what president obama is proposing on gun reform? and republicans said no, we hate it. after they said they support all the individual proposals, they said, well, do you like the guy who's proposing all these individual proposals that you liked? no, we hate those ideas. and that is insane. they like all the component parts of it. they like all these ideas. but then when these ideas that they like are proposed, they say they are against them because the person proposing them is president obama. that is insane. that is mindless. right? how do you make constructive policy in that kind of environment? people support the policy until they hear who else supports it and then they think they might be against it. how do you make p
of the republican party. losing 25 senate seats this year -- president obama only got 51% of the vote. the economy is looking great. a lot of democratic incumbents looked people ribble. the senate cannot be gerrymandered. it looked like a clean a snapshot of the country. for republicans to win 8 waterboarded -- while democrats one -- republicans will 8 and democrats won 25, that is dangerous. we need to figure out what went wrong in 2012. i'm not for endless naval gazing. there are plenty of fights to be had. where can we cooperate with president obama? in some ways, you lose an election, and you think about it for a few months. and you get back right on the horse and try to start writing again and figure out what we believe and and what fights we want to have and what policies we want to -- want to propose. host: politico wrote about you -- what have you been doing? guest: it is interesting to learn that is what i have been doing. i can start all i want. other people have to decide what they want to stand for. host: it says that bill crystal and his allies have been talking about starting reformi
president obama a big legal setback tonight and given republicans who charged that he acted improperly when he made some job appointments a huge victory. this is about what presidents get to do when congress is out of town, and this could affect all future presidents. our justice correspondent, pete williams, is with us from our newsroom with the details tonight. pete, good evening. >> reporter: brian, if this ruling stands, it will virtually eliminate a power that presidents of both parties have used for over a century. the constitution gives the president power, quote, to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the senate. president obama invoked that recess appointment power a year ago to fill vacancies that senate republicans refused to act on. three spots on the national labor relations board and richard cordray to run the new consumer financial protection bureau. but today a three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in washington said that power can only be used between the end of one session of congress and the beginning of another, not during any congressiona
about obama, the birtherism, we'll get to it later, more than a third of republicans think he was born somewhere else still. >> the problem -- i mean, bless peggy noonan. she wants to come in from on high and -- >> don't be jealous of another columnist. >> i'm not. i understand her intention but she doesn't have a clear diagnosis of the problem. 6 out of 7 of the republican presidential primary candidates last year were basically yahoo candidates who believed in any one of these -- >> remind me their names. >> i don't know if i remember, cain, perry, bachmann -- >> santorum. >> trump was in and out. newt gingrich, mr. colonial marxist, mitt romney flirted with it but stayed away from it. when the house republicans came into power two years ago, the tea partiers, one of the first things they did was to introduce a bill trying to redefine rape. so it's not just a bunch of yahoos out in new mexico or virginia with transvaginal probes. it is the heart of the party. >> and paul ryan -- >> you remind me of too much. let's go to jindal. here is a guy who is trying to be a leader. last night a
society, a group of modern republicans. he ascribes an awfully sinister motive to president obama these days considering the fact that the republican party hasn't needed much help in its recent collapse. boehner is not alone. house majority whip kevin mccarthy sees the same plot by the democrats. >> this person's main goal is to continue to try to break the republican party. he's out of touch with where america is at with what he's trying to do. >> come on, kevin. all of a sudden the democrats are sitting back in the back room conniving how to take the republicans apart. considering the republicans made it their mission to stop obama at all costs, it's fairly rich they accuse obama of using the same tactics against them. feehery, you're already laughing because the idea that the republicans think there's a big cabal of democrats that sit around and meet and they're saying why don't we get the republicans to say stupid things about black america, against latinos, come out against immigration reform and screw up any chance of being a majority party again, and it's all the democrats.
every few days. the panel of three judges-- all appointed by republican presidents-- said mr. obama had done an inappropriate end-run around the senate. but white house spokesman jay carney took issue with the ruling. >> the decision is novel and unprecedented. it contradicts 150 years of practice by democratic and republican administrations. so we respectfully but strongly disagree with the rulings. accord together congressional research service something like 280 plus intrasession recess appointments by, again, democratting and republican administrations dating back to 1867. >> sreenivasan: if the decision stands, it could invalidate hundreds of decisions made by the labor board. moreover, the body would not have enough members to issue decisions, effectively shutting it down. the ruling also could spell trouble for richard cordray, the head of the consumer financial protection board. he was not part of this legal case, but he was appointed in the same manner on the same day. for more on all this, we turn to steven greenhouse of "the new york times." nice to be here. >> steven, just b
defeat for president obama and a great victory for senate republicans. >> what does it mean for the future? why is it a big deal? >> whenever the president is trying to appoint someone and the senate for whatever reason doesn't approve them right away or at all, the president can do what's called a recess appointment that means he can appoint this person for about a year without the senate. this decision takes that option away. basically 40 senators now and there more than 40 republicans is they stop a nominee for president obama if the decision stands. they have no way around to put the people on the agencies wherever they are. >> the republicans really didn't go into recess. they would convene for a few seconds. >> correct. this decision said the recess appointments as they have been done not just by president obama, but all presidents in recent decades. they are all unconstitutional. >> sorry this a political decision? >> this is the question that is hard to answer. these are three very conservative republican judges. the political implications of the decision are clear.
that the substance matters here. the republicans knew they couldn't fight president obama on the debt ceiling. they should have just extended it sbeerly. i think there are some republicans who learned some lessons who broke with the party to vote with aid for the victims of hurricane sandy. so i think this sort of meeting is sort of the top line of people wanting to say it's just organization. but i think below that, there are republicans who know their problems run deeper. >> i don't doubt that, but i think that the bad signal is, for example, how are you going to say you're going to have change re-elect the same chairman in reince priebus, who we learned this week, had clint east wo east's empty chair in his office. to have that as some symbol that you want to recognize other than if you use an example to show how you lost an election, how dumb we could be. i mean, what -- can you re-e lek elect this guy's chair? >> look, we are in a two-party system. but the parties recon fizz your themselves. so, for example, there was ultimately a moment when the party shifted and where those democrats h
of democrats, 10 percent of republicans approve of president obama's job performance. seventy-six points ties exactly. president bush's fourth year in office as the most divisive on record. how about that? i mean, who would have guessed that it was such a similar performance. joining me now, the "a-team," pulitzer prize-winning columnist, fox is contributor. fox news legal analyst, attorney . and the chief congressional correspondent for the washington examiner. good to have you with us. you have to be impressed that president bush and president obama are tied in the ways in which they have divided the american people. that's impressive. >> i am not surprised assault. we have seen a series of swing elections where the voters are sort of throwing the bums out because they are not happy with their performance. it just results in us getting polarized factions in congress and in the white house. look, president obama ran on a liberal agenda, and that is what he talked about during his inaugural speech. nothing surprising, but the voters keep electing candidates who are polar opposites from one el
cop on the financial beat. senate republicans blocked a vote on richard cordray's nomination to be the first head of the consumer financial protection bureau. the president appointed him anyway, but that term ends this year and obama wants the senate to act this time. >> financial institutions have plenty of lobbyists looking out for their interests. the american people need richard to keep standing up for them. >> reporter: over the last year, cordray has put to rest many fears the c.f.p.b. would overreach. >> we approach this work with open minds, open ears and great determination. >> reporter: but republicans seem equally determined to block cordray. they want to change the c.f.p.b., replacing a single director with a board of commissioners. darren gersh, "n.b.r.," washington. >> susie: what really happened in the financial crisis, and what work still needs to be done, is the focus of a new book. "after the music stopped" is written by alan blinder, former vice chairman of the federal reserve, and now professor of economics at princeton. when i sat down with him today, i a
you've got to pov both ends this is what president obama calls balance and what the republicans call nonsense because it involves raising taxes. i think you have to do bovment i think you have to have more revenue and you have to cut back spending. >> susie: let's say congress doesn't do that. what happens next? explain to people what happens next. >> i think the real risk is that we come to a showdown in march when the current stopgap budget ends and we face the government shutdown. people will lose services. people will lose jobs. and there will be a fiscal contraction, on top of the ones that we've already put in place. and that's not great for the economy, for sure. >> you know, and this whole conversation about a budget and the deficit and all of that. it's all about raising taxes and cutting spending. and there's no discuss about growth. and that is what americans really want. growth and jobs. what do we have to do to get growth? >> well, the badh6+suz there, susie s that while higher growth is by far the best remedy, it's very hard to put if into effect. in a sizable way. you
to believe. average of 86% of democrats and 10% of republicans approve of the job barack obama did as president. 76%-point gap that ties george w. bush's fourth year as the polarized year in gallup record. >> this made me feel good when i read it. i thought, you know what? you can't blame president obama. media gets him a pass. he will take it. that is how he operates. they haven't done their job but you can't fool the electorate. when you ask him what he has done often time the left think people are naive and they pool the wool over their eyes. this shows that you can't. they go you know what? not that big o a uniter. >> bob: if you look pew research did poll on the inaugural address. every issue he raised, big majority of the american people agreed with it. this is not one of those things he is so far behind of the american people. the pew -- they took -- >> dana: it's lik we will never be against letting poor people to starve to death and eat cat foot. we agree with that. >> bob: there are other polls out that thought he did a very good job. leaving that aside, if we get closer
they are and gives republicans a green light to continue to block everything that president obama wants to get done in the senate. president obama on monday with a great inaugural address laying out his agenda. harry reid saying basically we are going to allow republicans to make it impossible to pass your agenda a. why? why? why why? back to our conversation in just a second, but i am excited, you know, i've told you that i have spent a lot of time on the site ancestry.com trying to track down my family roots. i haven't stopped. i have them all the way from delaware city to latvia. now, i am trying to find out which ones made the first move from the old world to the new world. but it's getting easier and easier because ancestry.com is now up to 11 billion historical documents and 41 million family trees that you can sort through online to find your family tree tracy your family tree and find out more about your ancestors. they make it easy by giving you two free weeks to look around, find out what you can discover before you actually very long to sign up. so i inv
